Seriously, take a picture of the board/screen/whatever, and import the image in to your notes.
I could easily see this irritating most professors to no end.
As soon as you give the OS a fair amount of filesystem activity (ie decompressing, installing etc.), it locks up. Vmware complains about something related to filesystem activity/read&write/something (can't remember, really), and the only option is to turn the virtual machine off at this point.
This is only my experience, of course. I have only tested this on Linux with host filesystems reiserfs and ext[3,4], and have not used a dedicated hard drive, only seperate partitions.
It's probably worth noting that it was also under Arch Linux, which requires a certain "hack" for installing VMware (Vmware requires sysv init scripts, Arch uses BSD-style).
It's not really about the technology, being broadband. It's about access to knowledge which is, as far as I'm concerned, an inalienable right.
Can you really not think of anything better to do with your life?
I suppose if your intent is to work for a nonprofit that might be legitimate, but I don't think that's the idea running through most marketing majors' heads.

A joke just flew directly over your head. Nice "reading comprehension skills".
I certainly couldn't have said it any better.
I mean, really?
I think I speak for about 2 billion people when I say that you are absolutely clueless.
